Source: InfoWorld - Posted by Dave Wreski   
Recently, a former student of mine wrote me asking how to handle an overzealous white-hat hacker.

Source: CSO Online - Posted by Anthony Pell   
I just read an interesting article by Peter Pachal in Mashable's tech section, in which Mike Calce, the former hacker known as "mafiaboy," says most of today's hackers are motivated by the desire to make a quick buck.
